Fathers for Good
1. Father cares.
“You’re stupid!” She taunted.
“Look, who’s talking? The drama queen.” her brother attacked back.
“What? Drama queen? You’re that kachre ke dabbe wala son brought by my dad.” She added.
“Huh! So, funny.” He tries to ignore the comment.
“No. It’s not. Ask dad if you do not trust me.” She confidently said.
“What’s on the bet?” He questioned.
“Pocket money,” she answered.
“Deal that!” he confirmed.
Both confidently visited. Before her brother could utter a single word, she quickly asked, “Dad, Isn’t true that my brother is kachre ke dabbe wala son?”
“Why? I mean, why he’s doubting on it? Of course, he’s.” Their father answered.
She grinned and gave a high-five to her father by saying, “You’re the best dad in the world.”
Then, she moved to her brother and murmured silently in such a way that her father couldn’t hear, “I’m going to count your pocket money. Bye.”
The very next moment when she left, her brother gave an angry look to his father and asked, “Why?”
“What?” His father asked back.
“You love her more than me. Isn’t It?” He taunted.
His father smiled and explained, “Son. I love you both equally. But you know what? Someday your sister is going to leave all of us alone. I will lose my princess and you, your first friend. Believe me, even infinite love for her will be less. Isn’t it?”
He was a mature kid. He totally understood everything and smiled by giving positive acknowledgment.
He leaves and just when he was at the door, his dad added, “ And listen, don’t forget to get your pocket money from me.”
He gave a confused look to his dad and with a smile, his dad replied, “I heard you guys behind the door.”
He smiled again. From that day onwards, every time when she teased him by saying kachre ke dabbe wala son, somewhere from his heart he felt happy for her.
P.S – “Kachre ke dabbe wala son” is a Hindi word which means an adopted son who was found in the garbage collection truck.
2. A true story that shows the greatness of the love of a father and fathers for good A story I read on Crossway.org
ON 7th of December 1988, AN EARTHQUAKE DEVASTATED THE NORTHWESTERN SECTION OF ARMENIA, KILLING AN ESTIMATED 25,000 PEOPLE.
Just after the earthquake, in a small town, a father rushed to his son’s school and find that the school had been flattened. There was nothing left to find.
But he had no thought of turning back. He used to tell his son, “No matter what happens, I will always be there for you when you require me.”
Though his prospects appeared hopeless, the father began feverishly removing rubble from where he believed his son’s classroom had been. Other parents only wailed hopelessly…”My son!” or “My daughter!” Some even told him to go back home, there was no little chance that any of the children could be alive. Yet, he replied: “I had a promise to my son that I would be there for him anytime he required me. I have to dig now.”
Courageously, he did it all alone; no one volunteered to help him. He just wants to confirm for himself: “Is my boy alive or is he dead?” Finding strength and endurance for his son, the faithful, loving father continued to dig…for 8 hours…12…24…36 hours. Then in the 38th hour, as he heaved away a heavy piece of rubble, he heard voices. “Armand!” he screamed.
A child’s voice responded: “Dad! It’s me…Armand!” Then, “I told them not to worry. If you were alive, you would save me, and once you saved me, they’d be saved. You kept your promise dad, You did it, Dad!”
A few moments later, the dad was helping his son Armand and 13 more frightened, thirsty and hungry boys and girls climb out of the debris. Free at last! When the building fell, these children were spared in a tent-like pocket.
When the whole town praised Armand’s dad, his explanation was, “I promised my son, ‘No matter what happens, I will be there for you!'”
3. Fathers for good. Best lesson for life
Son: Daddy I want to get married
Dad: First say sorry.
Son: For what?
Dad: Say sorry.
Son: But for what, what did I do?
Dad: You first say sorry
Son: But what’s my fault?
Dad: You first say sorry.
Son: But WHY?
Dad: You first say sorry
Son: Please, at least tell me a reason?
Dad: You first say sorry
Son: OK, I am sorry
Dad: Now you are prepared, your training is complete. When you learn to say sorry for no reason, you can marry.
A Father’s love is incomparable to any other kind of love.
4. Fathers for good and fun.
A hilarious short story.
I applied a hair mask, and once I washed it off I detected that my hair was way darker than before.
My hair dried. I saw the new color clearly
It was bright blue.
In fact, my dad wanted to play a joke on my mom, and he thought it was her mask.
I couldn’t wash the blue color off my hair and reached school just like that.
My teacher called my parents to visit my school and explain my new look.
A day before this, my father had used the same mask for himself.
I wish you could be there to see my teacher’s face. When my dad and I came to her!
Both of us had blue hair.
I love my dad.
